Orzo with Leftover Meat

This recipe was inspired by watching Jamie Oliver – he mixed up this bbq flavoured sauce to go with leftover meat.  I can’t remember what he did after that but I decided to put my left-over meat mix in some orzo, and it worked!

  • 1 Tbsp BBQ Sauce, I used Aldersons Morepork BBQ Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbp sweet chili sauce
  • 250g leftover meat – chopped into small pieces
  • 1 onion
  • 5 mushrooms
  • 250g orzo
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp vegetable stock or bouillon
  • Bunch of fresh basil

Mix together the BBQ sauce, soy sauce and sweet chili sauce and add the chopped meat, mix well to coat meat.

Heat a large frying pan on the stove and add some oil and the chopped onion.  After a few minutes add the mushrooms, cook for a few minutes.  Add the orzo and stir, then add the wine.  Cook until the wine evaporates.  Add the water and bouillon and simmer until orzo is nearly done, around 15 minutes.  Add the meat and sauce mix and simmer for another 5 mins stirring until all water is dissolved and orzo is cooked.  Add fresh chopped basil at the end and mix well.
